UNBC is committed to the safety of every member of our community so has developed resources to provide emergency notifications.  The alert systems allow the University to quickly and efficiently contact faculty, staff, students and guests with important information during an emergency.

Desktop Alert System

Desktop alertWhen an emergency event takes place, the alert system allows UNBC to send a full screen message to all managed computers such as computer desktops, lecture theatre screens and digital signage around the campus.

Stay calm and take appropriate action depending on the emergency, following the instructions provided on the screens.

An ALL-CLEAR message will be distributed in the same manner once the emergency event is over.


UNBC Safe App UNBC SAFE is a safety application that can be downloaded to your work and personal electronic mobile devices. The app features emergency contacts, services, information and safety tips. Emergency messaging can be sent to you via Push notifications, though you will need to enable GPS in order to utilize those services.
